Please take a moment to click the "rules" link in the top navigation bar and read (and follow) them.
Specifically, people have been treading on the following points, that need more attention:
- Quoting previous posts: only quote relevant sections you are replying to, and don't quote the entire post. Also, use common sense when to quote: especially if the post you are replying to is right above it, be as sparse as possible in your quoting. If you can reply without quoting anything and it's still clear, then that is what you should do.
- Stay on-topic: "I don't want to make a new thread for this other question I have" is no excuse. Please do not do this. Creating a new topic isn't any more work than replying to an existing one. At the very least it will require moderator intervention to split a thread (which is a lot of unnecessary work) and at the worst you're completely derailing a thread. One discussion topic per topic, please.
- If an issue is marked as "closed", don't continue posting in it unless it is directly relevant, additional information that is essential to the already-solved topic. Otherwise do not post in those threads and make a new one.
